Magic Me to present at COP26, the United Nations Climate Change Conference 2021 with Generation Rebellion project

Share

We are delighted to announce that a group of older and younger women working with Magic Me will be part of COP26 in November, showcasing the power of intergenerational activism through a live streamed workshop and film screening. 

“I would like to tell all the young people: have hope!” (Older participant)

Join us to explore how it feels to be an activist and what it means to take action. Navigate the everyday feelings and challenges of climate activism and encounter fresh perspectives with a dynamic, intergenerational group of female panellists and creators.

For those wondering what happens when you run out of ideas – a dose of encouragement

For those feeling weighed down – an injection of energy

Come along to meet the group via live video link and explore the challenges we face as climate activists of all ages. Take part in an activity and discussion facilitated by theatre-maker Sue Mayo and climate activist Maz Morris and help us in our quest to discover solutions, drawing wisdom from each other and from the wide-ranging perspectives of this group of women from East London. We aren’t experts, and we can’t solve this crisis alone, but we do know how important it is to work together!
